From drought to overwhelming rain, the last two years have been tough on the New England region. Though we have not been hit as hard as some parts of the country and of the globe, the reality of our changing climate is evident in our own gardens and open spaces. Is there anything we can do to keep our home and local landscapes healthy and thriving? The answer is YES!

Join Trevor Smith for this talk about how to garden and manage landscapes for resilience. How can we keep soils intact and vigorous? What plant species are most adaptable? And which species are key for maintaining the biodiversity on which our land depends? Trevor is the Design and Education Manager for Weston Nurseries, but he also has long experience in regenerative land care, from addressing urban heat islands with greening projects to designing rain gardens and managing stormwater runoff.

This event is FREE and in-person at Acton Town Hall, 472 Main St., Acton, MA, Room 204, on April 24th at 7pm. There is a zoom option for those who cannot attend in person. When you register, you can indicate whether you plan to attend in person or whether you need a zoom link. Register HERE.
